Onyx Notes SDK | Third Party Note Taking App

Hello all Onyx Owners, I am thinking about buying a large ebook reader with note taking capability. So far, my research revealed, that third party note taking apps are lagging because they don't use onyx notes sdk. 1) are there note taking apps available using a svg based file format? 2) If not, are the onyx sdks public? (I already programmed a simple note taking app for my nearly broken linux tablet.) So I am thinking about programming/porting my rudimentary note taking program to android and ...

POTD: If it’s RED it’s DEAD

Morale Patches, some love them some hate them. Today’s Picture Of The Day is a vintage Aimpoint patch. The current Aimpoint patch has “Open Your Eyes” written instead, which is more politically correct than the pictured version.

Fireside Chats Ep11: Austin Jones Creator of The Legal Armor Piercing Handgun Round U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- In 1982 NBC ran a “Prime Time” special on Teflon-coated bullets labeling them “armored piercing” bullets. Their “expert” claimed that the Teflon increased the bullet's penetration power by 20%. The news show argued that these bullets were a danger to police. In this special, NBC created the term “cop killer” for all armor-piercing bullets. In August of 1986 HR 3132 — PL 99-408 was pass...

Shazam!

I just watched it online. This was a really good and funny movie. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It did have the SJW "rainbow" type of cast, but it did fit the story. If you can watch it free, I highly recommend it. even better, Michelle Borth and Meagan Goode are both looking good in it. :thumb: They needed more screen time though. The villain was also well played.

I find this more amusing than my kids do

I made this block (you can see all the sides in this little video) because I was getting sick of nagging and sick of saying the same thing every day to my children. So I just hand them the block or leave it near by, as a quiet request. When I put this in instagram I laughed at what others said are their go-to nags. It's rainy today, which is great because I really need to sew on costumes and staying inside and listening to audio books feels so much better when the weather is bad. I am facin...

Most accurate method to convert PDF -> ePub

Hello, give me please suggestion how to do best in converting retail PDF ebook (ie. no scanned pages as bitmap, but a true selectable text) to ePub. Tried Calibre's internal convertor but that doesn't produce satisfactory result (resulting ebook contains nonsense characters by places and seems to be missing parts of the text). Tried also ABBYY PDF Transformer, but the result is yet worse. Of course I need a readable ebook that reflows the paging and preserves the original text formatting/structu...

Keep more versions of the same format

Hello, any possibility to keep more versions of the same book (under single library item) in same format? (and possibly name the versions accordingly). I noticed that when I open the metadata dialogue for a book, and drag&drop additional version of the book on the upper right list, the former instance of the same format (if existed) is replaced by the new. I'd need somehow to keep them both (and distinguish them by menaingful name), so they appear in the conversion dialogue when I request conve...

Stonewall at 50: stories from a gay rights revolution

In June 1969, in the violent wake of a police raid on a New York bar, Stonewall was born – a defining moment remembered here by those who protestedThe Stonewall riots started in the early hours of 28 June 1969 during a police raid at the Stonewall Inn, Greenwich Village, a favourite haunt of gay and lesbian New Yorkers.
